All the day you’ll have bad luck

April 3, 2013

I found an old penny lying on the pavement and crouched down to pick it up, knowing it would bring me luck. But I didn’t bargain on being knocked to the ground by a passing cyclist who lost his balance and landed on me, breaking my glasses. And my ankle.

  1. Lucky for the cyclist… nice soft landing. Did you know there is enough Nickel in a ‘Copper’ penny that it sticks to a magnet? Glad I didn’t discover that when I was little would have been disturbing to have magnetic copper

      Most disturbing, I won’t tell that to my son otherwise he won’t sleep for the next week. Mind you, he probably already knows – he seems to know most things these days. Anyway, a lighthearted story for today, after yesterday’s darker tale.
